Putting on a professional performance last weekend, United were able to pick up three vital points against a struggling Huddersfield side as they look to shore up their chances of securing a Champions League spot come May.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the match despite returning to first-team training after a knee injury during the week, while Daley Blind, Eric Bailly and Marouane Fellaini remain sidelined.

"He can buy the lottery and win today".

"All the players worked hard".

His comments were perhaps a little tongue in cheek given his past behaviour, but the Portuguese said he has made a big effort to improve his conduct on the sidelines, although he freely admitted he was nowhere near "perfect".

"The rest of the team helped and all the players worked so hard, so to say the keeper was important is not fair for the others, everybody was important".
